The Lille Deal

I've just returned from a very pleasant visit to Lille for their Comics Festival, where we were treated like kings. Kings, I tell you! And I made some friends. Here are a few of them:

Left to Right: Emma Simcock-Tooth, Ali Pow3rs, Emily Hare and Kev Crossley

Left to Right: D'Israeli, Lin Carey, Mike Carey, Jamie Delano, Chris Weston

Left to Right: David Billoir, Jamie Delano, Bryan Talbot, Alan Mitchell, Lin Carey and Mike Carey.

I also did a bunch of sketches - here are a couple I managed to bring home with me:

A big thank you to the sponsors and hosts of the show. They even managed to find some vegetarian food for me, which I had expected would prove impossible in France (the country where eating meat is not just a right, but a duty).

And yes, all right, the beds and the rooms in which we found them were exactly the same size, but you can't have everything.


  1. Damn Roger, you edited me out of the picture at the table with d'israeli and co...
    i'll have my revenge !
    Glad you make it back Safly.


  2. I promise you, there was an empty chair there! Maybe you were getting a drink or something. Lovely to meet you, though!

  3. I know just teasing you.
    Thanks for the good time, hope next time we'll have more time to chat.



  4. Poor Yethi Bob... Why are you so sad? I wish I knew cool places where you could find Yethi Saras, Yethi Clarices and Yethi Mariahs. Or, at least, there could be a Yethi Lily Allen to cheer you up.

  5. Hi Roger, I'm glad you like the trip to Lille, you're welcome for the next year.
    In advance, happy new year for you and your family.


  6. Hey, Roger! Long time since the last post! Too busy? I've been following the Fred strips in the site. They're great, as usual, man!
